Sipper Photography attended such a fabulous Bridal Show event this past weekend that was hosted by Hotel Irvine.  All of the vendors did a great job showing off their services to potential brides.  For this feature we thought we would share some of the favorite things we saw for any of you still planning your weddings.  There were so many beautiful tablescapes, floral arrangements and bridal gowns showcased at this amazing event venue at Hotel Irvine.  We hope you ladies enjoyed the day as much as we did.  We just LOVE weddings and wish you all the best in your wedding planning!!!
A huge shout out goes to Stephanie Bennett and her staff at Hotel Irvine for always being so great to work with.  You really know how to do events! Thank you so much for having us be a part of this day.

We just photographed Chris and Maryalice’s wedding at the Red Horse Barn and were so impressed by all of the decor details that we wanted to feature them in a separate blog. At this wedding we worked with An All Inclusive Event and Robyn’s Event Planning. Both of these wedding & event companies do such an impeccable job with their events. We are continually amazed at the detail and workmanship that goes into their weddings. It truly is a pleasure to be surrounded by other vendors that share the same work ethic as us. Both the staff of Red Horse Barn, An All Inclusive Event and Robyn’s Event Planning go above and beyond to make everything perfect on your wedding day. We highly recommend them!
If you are looking for a great rustic, western or outdoor woodsy themed wedding venue, you’ve found it here with the Red Horse Barn in Huntington Beach.  Enjoy all of the wedding details!!

Congrats to our featured couple today, Chris and Maryalice, on their recent wedding. It was a beautiful day for a June wedding at The Red Horse Barn in Huntington Beach.  We love this venue as it makes for such a romantic setting for your special day.  It was such a pleasure working with Chris and Mara (a.k.a Maryalice) as they have some cute love stories.  The two met on a blind date that was set up by the groom’s sister, Megan.  After the date, the two began to follow each other on Instagram and the rest they say is history.  These two are quite the sports fans, during the ceremony the officiant mentioned that Mara was a keeper when she agreed to season tickets for the Anaheim Ducks.  Chris was overjoyed!!  They also shared with us that they got engaged during an Angels Baseball game.  How awesome is that?
The day was perfect thanks to all of the details and coordination of An All Inclusive Event and Robyn’s Event Planning.  In fact, we were so amazed by all of their hard work and fabulous wedding details that we will be featuring them in a separate blog to follow this post.  We hope you check back to see all of their fabulous work.

Congrats again to Chris+Maryalice!  Wishing you both a wonderful life together… cheers! J+D

Here are some ideas for venues if you are planning a Newport Beach, Orange County Wedding.  We were thrilled to spend the day with Mike and Shannon and photograph their wedding.   We started with a first look before the wedding at the Balboa Bay Resort and took a few photos of the couple there. We then headed to the Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic Church for the wedding ceremony.  Afterwards the couple requested we go to the beach for the bridal photos.  Finally, their wedding reception was held at the Harborside Restaurant and Grand Ballroom located near the Balboa Fun Zone.  Such great spots for a wedding.  We hope you enjoy the photos.

We photographed Richie and Sheela’s wedding at the Balboa Inn in Newport Beach.  We loved working with this couple!  Sheela dressed in a traditional Indian Bridal Saree.  I love the first shot of her mom and Aunt helping her get dressed and all of the bangles and gold.  It looks so beautiful.  The couple had their wedding and reception on the Terrace at Balboa Inn. We also incorporated some Beach photos by the Balboa Pier since this venue is so close to the sand in Newport.  Congratulations to Richie & Sheela, it was a pleasure working with you and your family.

Cheers+Love, J+D
